I was traveling with friends in the Thumb area and all motels had no vacancies. We were able to call management and luckily got a great room (very clean)at a great price. The manager was very upbeat and took care to show us the room and explain the great continental breakfast in the morning. I will recommend to friends and...

This place is terrible smelled like a dump did not make up our rooms or put clean towels in them. the shower towel was filthy from the bathroom floor. The guy at the desk was very strange made comments about the women with us actually made them nervous. The rooms are so outdated It felt like it was i1960.

This place is a complete dump! I asked twice for a handicap room. The idiot manager gave me one of the smallest rooms they had after saying no problem to my request. Not only were the rooms as small as an outhouse john, they had an airfreshner in the room called "Odor Control". I was wondering why it stunk in...

We arrived on the 2nd of July, without reservations traveling by Honda Goldwing 1800 trike and trailer we pull behind. We found the room to have everything we needed, comfy bed, tv, microwave, small fridge. The shower was amazing! The room was clean, curtains in the morning really kept the sunlight out so we could sleep in a little. There...

We stayed here a few weeks back for some festivities going on in the area. Although the place was booked full, we had no issues with parking or noise. The room was a bit dated but it was clean and stocked with all that we required. A word of advice, if you do not want house keeping coming into your...

We stayed at this very nice motel 2 nights the first of August. It was a last minute booking, due to a power outage nearby. We found the lobby so beautiful, clean, even a lovely fireplace. Raj, owner, and front desk clerk, greeted us so warmly, and friendly. We'd requested a first floor room, and were shown there. The room...

We just spent three days/nights at Thumb Heritage Inn and were very pleased. These are not high-end fancy rooms, but they are very VERY clean, well maintained, well equipped and comfortable. We also enjoyed a complimentary continental breakfast and great coffee at 6:00 a.m. The manager is terrific, hardworking and conscientious. We will definitely book again if in the area.

When I went to this place, I really didn't know what to expect.the location put us close to the hi-way drive in and seeing it be one of the only hotels in town, you would think it would be a dump. What I experienced put this hotel up to par to a wingate. The service was really phenomenal. Puting two...
